In this chapter, we will classify the PV systems based on the architecture of the systems, that is, centralized versus distributed architectures. The distributed architectures are later classified based on the level of MPP tracking distribution within the PV generator. The implementation can also be classified according to the way the power is processed in the architecture, that is, full or partial power processing. The rest of the chapter will then concentrate on the dynamics of the PV generator interfacing converters and the stability issues within this constellation.
Most of the PV systems are grid-connected systems as depicted in
